So I received my son’s report from Speech and Language Therapy either on Friday or Saturday. I saw a couple of corrections needed to be made.

There is already a lot of great advice on the internet about applying for DLA. I completed the form for my son yesterday and got it mailed off and I’m really glad to have that behind me. 40 pages of excruciating detail on exactly what is not quite right with my son isn’t a fun… Continue reading A Few Notes on DLA
